congress whacks the power under the commerce power or necessary and proper power to impose a mandate to purchase insurance. of course it says the statute was valid under the taxing power but only did that by read characterizing the statute as not a mandate to purchase insurance but as a tax on the status of not having insurance so construed they upheld it as a valid exercise of taxing power. it is worth recognizing that that is a different statute from the statute congress passed and it has different practical effects. most law-abiding citizens if told there is a constitutionally valid mandate to purchase insurance will purchase insurance. i think most people if told that they have to pay a tax if they don't purchase insurance will want to know how much is the tax and how much does the insurance cost and they will make a rational decision whether to purchase health insurance and some people will purchase insurance and some people will choose to pay the tax. the practical consequence i believe is that the number of individuals who will remain uninsured will be higher under a regime th
on the commerce clause. everyone of the justices at some level will see the commerce power is fairly broad. i also think all nine justices recognize there have to be limits on the commerce power, otherwise the whole point of enumerating the various powers of congress was entirely beside the point. they could instead the commerce power, were down. now i think some of the justices may question what role there is for the judiciary to enforce the commerce power letters. what happened in this case is that five justices did adopt what is bad at least the dominant view since the lopez decision, which is the core can simply knock it out of enforcing limits on federalism on the power of the federal government to adhere to iowa quote justice kennedy from his lopez concurrence. as he said then, the federal balance is too essential a part of archons additional structure in place to vital ebola in securing freedom for us to admit an inability to intervene when one or the other level of government has tipped the scales too far. i think he also recognize this is not an area where there are strong occasional ince
of the legislation. the bill passed out of our subcommittee and the full energy and commerce committee on voice votes with strong, strong bipartisan support. i believe, mr. speaker, it has a high likelihood of being accepted to the senate and to the president. we will certainly give them that opportunity. i urge my colleagues to support this bill so we can finally see this significant improvement signed into law. i want to thank mr. murphy and all of the others who worked to expedite this legislation and get it to the floor today, and i'm going to ask my colleagues to join with us in passing this bill. with that said, mr. speaker, i will reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves. the gentleman from pennsylvania. mr. murphy: mr. speaker, i have no more speakers on this bill, and i'm prepared to close if the gentleman from north carolina is prepared to close as well. mr. butterfield: i have no more speakers and i am too prepared to close. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman from pennsylvania reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from north carolina is

it directly on advertising, which, say the chamber of commerce often does, you will at least know where it's coming from because it'll say the "chamber of commerce," or it'll say a, "improve america," a project of the chamber of commerce. >>> the u.s. chamber is responsible for the content of this advertising. >>> the u.s. chamber is responsible for the content of this advertising. >>> the u.s. chamber of commerce is responsible for the content of this advertising. >>> so you know when they spend it directly, at least what part of the economy it's coming from. however, they may well give that money to another organization which isn't even got their name on it. so if they end up giving it to a (c) (4) which then spends the money and that group is called better america, you don't know where better america's money came from. so it is, these groups do not themselves disclose their donors. and again, you know, most of their work is lobbying, it's oriented towards issues. you may well be right, that they have really strong policy positions. but what they would say is, "the money we spend directl
by the energy and commerce committee here in the house. but support for this agenda also requires us to pull the plug on existing programs that simply aren't working. and the department of energy's title 17 loan guarantee program is simply not advancing the ball on an all-of-the-above energy goal. the no more solyndras act, this bill phases out this costly, ineffective and frankly very mismanaged program. the investigation of solyndra uncovered a story worse than anyone could have imagined. it is amazing to me that the administration gave a half billion dollar loan guarantee to a company that its own experts predicted would fail. a company so dysfunctional that it burned through this giant handout and went bankrupt in two years. even worse, when it became clear to the administration that solyndra was in trouble, it chose to double down on the risky bet, gambling even more taxpayer dollars with a desperate loan restructuring instead of trying to cut its losses and move on. solyndra is the most visible but far from the only example of title 17 failures. in fact, it is hard to point to a single
under the commerce power, whether it is justified under the necessary and proper power of the constitution, and whether or not it can be justified under the taxing power. it's worth focusing on the fact these are three issues and they needed to prevail on one. these are three separate issues where y they had the tower pass the statute. and so -- if you think back to the statement there was only a 1% chance of prevailing, part of the challenge for those attacking the statute was they really did have to run the table on the arguments. and to make matters even more difficult, i think it was conventional wisdom and a part of conventional wisdom that didn't turn out to be wrong, there were four votes on the court ready to uphold the law on any one of these grounds. and so what that meant in practical terms is that in order to prevail, the challengers really needed to run the table and on the three issues get 15 out of 15 available votes. now the god news is that the challengers managed quite remarkable feet of getting 14 out of 15 votes. [laughter] bad news, of course, the 1

of the financial sector. there's other sobering data as well, showing a still sluggish recovery. the commerce department revised its estimate of second-quarter economic growth down yesterday from 1.7%. mitt romney seized on the change in springfield, virginia. >> we are at 1.3%. this is... this is unacceptable. >> woodruff: other economic indicators also paint a mixed picture. the stock market itself, while down today, has been climbing in recent weeks to its highest levels in nearly five years. today, the dow jones industrial average lost almost 49 points after a weak manufacturing report and worries over europe to close just over 13,437. and the housing market may be stabilizing. a key index showed home prices rose in july to the highest level in almost two years, pointing to a recovery there. consumer spending was also up last month, but it was largely to pay for higher gasoline prices. for a closer look at all this with two people who follow these matters closely, we turn to kenneth rogoff, a professor of economics and public policy at harvard university, and co- author of "this time, it'

this week. mr. romney speaking to the hispanic chamber of commerce. the president on univision. everybody agrees they need 38% of the latino vote. right now the president is up two to one among latinos. continuing with kristine pelosi and jackie gingrich cushman and senator evan bayh. can the republican candidate overcome his own harsh, very harsh antiimmigration rhetoric during the primary season and draconian language that broke no compromise, no compassion at all for the undocumented? >> i think it really is a problem for mitt romney but a bigger problem for conservatives and republicans in the future. the demographic wave of hispanics that has hit america is something that is going to be continuing and if conservatives cannot reach out and win hispanic support they are going to be a permanent minority. so mitt romney has got to get serious about this. i think the best way to do that is to talk about legal immigration reform. because the fact is illegal immigration is now down to a 40 year low. and we he could solve illegal immigration if we would simplyn legally, people that we need w
affect the interstate commerce coming and for period of time, they even argued that this would cover all such land that could be the habitat for migratory birds. something that is commonly referred to as the goose test. what is interesting about the regulations that the epa enforced is that we know they cannot be enforced as written. the regulation as it is promulgated purport to reach what could affect the interstate commerce. we know in the united states versus lopez in 1995 the court decision since the commerce clause doesn't reach the mere potential on the commerce. there must be a substantial effect on the interstate commerce. the existing regulations don't require the substantial effect in fact they don't even require the actual effect. by their terms they only require a potential effect. they reach far beyond the scope of the federal commerce clause authority. the supreme court has twice been asked to consider the application of the regulations to the private land owners once in the case called swank. they did it merely to keep it in the constitutional bounds and in each case they
